I’m a big fan of “controlling the opponent” and making sure I can use every conceivable weapon I have while trying to minimize their ability to retaliate. One thing you can do to better maximize control is to check to if you can use a rear knee strike or thrusting sweep kick to your opponents key targets without getting in your own way. If you CAN do this, you’re one step closer to dominating your opponent. If you CAN’T hit them easily with any low line strikes, you’re out of alignment and subsequently are not positioned for performance.
Try getting out of your own way. It works.
